Olympian Trump Political Bandits and Sanctimonious Holier-than-Thou Evangelical Snobs--Take Note

******************

Olympian Trump Political Bandits and Sanctimonious Holier-than-Thou Evangelical Snobs--Take Note!

A note or two of patriotism and belief sincerely sung and enlivened by those outside your inbred coiffure hairdo huddles of on-the-cheap and cowardly patriotism and god-laced religiosity:

(May it indeed be true that despite your see-on-my-sleeve rectitude and correctness you do not own nor monopolize all things worthy?)

God as a Mob Boss

Like most folks, my view of Christianity is heavily influenced by my years as a child and youth growing up within local churches.  I must say at the outset that whether in a more rural or municipal setting, discussions of ethics focused upon our direct call to responsibilities as individuals and as Christians.  Whether merchants, teachers, or farmers, the question was always how we could contribute towards realizing a more abundant life in all its dimensions in the broadest possible way.

I knew even then that Christianity could take a turn towards emotional fanaticism—with "End-Timers" being peculiarly suspectable to an ugly indulgence in self-righteousness twisted together with a “burn-baby-burn” mentality towards remaining humanity.  These groups evinced utter confidence that (despite Jesus’s advice that only God knew when that date would come) the End-Time was indeed here, that they themselves were safely within the mob boss's favor, and that all others would writhe in pain and destruction—while they themselves (being in the strong mob boss’s good graces) would reap the rewards of triumphant gang loyalty.

This is totally antithetical to my view of Christian ethics.  We are to serve as a creative and redemptive force often in a very local and specific sense.  But even on the world stage, we are never to exalt in the rending of civilization into smoldering heaps of ashes. We mortals are to do what we can to help advance societal health; and not to gleefully anticipate the suffering retribution of the great-unwashed less-worthy-than-we ourselves.






Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring
Johann Sebastian Bach

Jesus, joy of man's desiring
Holy wisdom, love most bright
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned
Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying round Thy throne

All Royal Turkeys Be Ready for Some Old Fashion Kitchen Heat !!!





Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

Too Little......Too Late

I know Mr. Putin you and your bed of slithering slimy snakes know that there exist snapshots taken following 09/11 of Republicans winking at US soldiers prodigally waterboarding captured war prisoners; and even earlier of respectable pillars of society winking at Jim Crow obscenities during the Republican Southern Strategy; and then there’s the total traitorous depravity of formal paradigms of rectitude winking at electoral dirty tricks during the run of several beloved Republican presidents.

But unfortunately for you Mr. Putin, you don’t understand the force and power of equality as a baseline belief working within and throughout broad and repetitive human experiential intimacy.  My dear Mr. Putin, your cherished snapshots are mere flecks of detritus upon the inexorable sweep of human freedom.

Shake That Thing !!! ....A Call to Arms

Thanksgiving in Indianapolis

Background:  The Movie Hoosiers 
(Wikipedia)

The film is very loosely based on the story of the 1954 Indiana state championsMilan High School (/ˈmaɪlən/ MY-lən), but the term "inspired by a true story" may be more appropriate, as there was little the two teams had in common.[4]

In most U.S. states, high school athletic teams are divided into different classes, usually based on the number of enrolled students, with separate state championship tournaments held for each classification. At the time, Indiana conducted a single state basketball championship for all of its high schools and continued to do so until 1997.[4]

Some elements of the film do match closely with those of Milan's real story. Like the film's fictional "Hickory High School", Milan was a very small high school in a rural, southern Indiana town. Both schools had undersized teams. Both Hickory and Milan won the state finals by two points: Hickory won 42–40, and Milan won 32–30. The final seconds of the Hoosiers state final hold fairly closely to the details of Milan's 1954 final; the final shot in the film was taken from virtually the same spot on the floor as Bobby Plump's actual game-winner. The film's final game was shot in the same building that hosted the 1954 Indiana final, Butler University's Hinkle Fieldhouse (called Butler Fieldhouse in 1954) in Indianapolis.[4]

However, unlike the film's plot, the 1954 Milan High School basketball team came into the season as heavy favorites and finished the '53-'54 regular season at 19–2. In addition, the previous 1952–1953 team went to the state semi-finals, and they were considered a powerhouse going into the championship season despite the school's small enrollment.[4]

What Happened to My Democratic Party...

A word to the Elites who stole my Democratic Party that only yesterday excelled in economic and social justice but now recklessly and coquettishly proselytizes for the ancient menace of SODOMY and the SID-VICIOUS  practice of yanking from nascent human life the inalienable rights bestowed and bestowable only by our Creator--these political bums seek to smear dissenters like me with highfaluting sold-out psychological phobic aspersions.  Let me make very clear what I fear....I fear YOU and your ALLEY-CAT prostitution of LIBERTY. !!!!
